Enormous demands are placed on the control and manual dexterity of the contemporary drum set player, particularly in the Jazz idiom. Today´s drummer is expected to have developed limb coordination to a degree that would have been thought unachievable a few short years ago. This text presents an effective method of dealing with the mastery of drum set coordination by breaking it down into four sections: 1) Ride Cymbal - Right hand; 2) Snare Drum - Left foot; 3) Bass Drum - Right foot; 4) High hat - Left foot. The author clearly states his goals in writing this book: ´´It is my sincere wish that the materials presented in [this] text will be of considerable help in developing musical approach to the coordination skills demanded of today´s drummer.´´ -John Pickering
This book is for anybody who wants to discover the big, wide world of drum fills. You´ll find plenty of fill concepts to inspire you and enable you to understand the essential theory behind them so you can create your own drum fills. Step by step, Jost introduces rhythmic concepts that can be used universally on different levels and in every musical situation. He presents orchestration ideas, phrasings, and exercises focusing on dynamics and accents. He shows the different subdivisions that are essential for drum-fill playing and fills for binary and ternary grooves such as shuffles. Ideas on switch & path orchestration, diddle kicks, and clockwise & counterclockwise playing will enrich your drumming, as will step-hit-hi-hat, hand & foot rolls, cymbal chokes, stick shots, and many more. The JOST NICKEL´S FILL BOOK comes with an MP3 CD so you can hear many of the recorded fills in different tempos. Additionally, for those fills where you need to see how to move, there are twenty videos online. A 12-page insert containing reading texts completes the concept of this book. Jost and Alfred Music wish you a lot of fun and success with the JOST NICKEL´S FILL BOOK. ANIKA NILLES, famous female drummer, says about Jost´s fill book: ´´A great book for all of us ... I find Jost´s fill book very inspiring for my own playing and I highly recommend it!´´ MATT HALPERN, voted as ´´The Best Metal Drummer´´ by Modern Drummer magazine: ´´One of the things I love most about Jost´s playing is his approach to drum fills. His use of flams, cymbal accents, and melodic placements are just a few components that make his musical style so exciting to see and hear.´´ MIKE JOHNSTON, Clinician/Educator of the Year 2016: ´´Jost is teaching you the deeper concepts that allow the fills to exist in the first place. Amazing book by a world class player!´´ CHRIS COLEMAN, drummer with Prince, Chaka Khan, and many more: ´´Not only is Jost one of my favorite humans, he´s a methodical and practical BEAST of a Musician & Drummer. This book will show you ALL of that.´´
Many of the great modern players have pentatonics at their command and melodic disposal. The book provides a practical yet creative approach to assimilating pentatonics into your melodic musical reservoir. The author has taught this method over many years and it has proven to be very successful. This is a method book designed for all instruments. Chord changes are included for C Concert, B flat and E flat instruments. The accompanying recording has been designed for use in conjunction with the text. There are 18 tunes for you to play along with, featuring Renato Chicco on piano, Dave Santoro on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums, plus eight demonstration tracks performed by the author on tenor saxophone.
MODERN DRUMMING is a practical educational concept that has been proven through many years of teaching and is ideally suited for both drum lessons and self-study. Next to the motivational aspect and the fun of making music, the pedagogic and didactic aspect of truly meaningfully and effectively conveying the contents is the primary focus. Intended for drummers of all levels from beginners to advanced players, MODERN DRUMMING 1 consolidates the most important factors of modern drumming and provides an effective methodology for learning all relevant musical styles. Much value is placed on the advancement of your creativity and the development of your own style. MODERN DRUMMING 1 teaches all standard rhythms used in modern music, covering virtually all musical styles: rock, pop, hard rock, heavy metal, jazz, Latin, fusion, R&B, funk, hip-hop, jungle, house, drums ´n´ bass etc. There is also a chapter on fills and licks, and double bass drum technique is covered extensively, as are the relevant rudiments. The book is conceived in such a way that you are not forced to struggle with monotonous exercises forever, but can quickly begin playing rhythms and fills on the drum set. Several drum solos, as well as play-along songs recorded by a live band, allow you to practically apply what you´ve learned: you begin making music right away, just like in a band. ´´Of all the drums books I´ve seen today, this drum school with CD ist the absolute top´´ (musicmagazine Workshop)
New Ways of Brazilian Drumming presents a contemporary vision regarding Brazilian rhythms for drum set, including history and percussion scores of those rhythms, from the traditional patterns to the new concept of ´´Brazilian Claves´´ The 96 tracks CD showcases all rhythms and several exercises, besides a samba and a maracatu play-along, providing everything a musician of any country needs in order to develop an authentic Brazilian musical language. Since my first trip to Brazil in 1992 until now, I have seen firsthand the great enthusiasm that Sergio Gomes has for taking his native Brazilian folk rhythms, orchestrating them on the drumset, and sharing this knowledge with students. This book is a concise, easy to follow extension of that enthusiasm. I know it will be invaluable to those of us who love the music of Brazil but still find it mystifying. Thank You Sergio!

Hier die Meinung einiger bekannter Schlagzeuger: ´´ The material you are about to investigate is perhaps some of the most important aspects of music, some of those being musical expression and musical interaction. The challenge that Stephan has pre- sented to the student of drumming is more than the typical exercise manual. Instead of learning ´what´ to play, he presents methods and procedures for learning ´how´ to play, something most drum books do not focus on. The 5 habits that he feels are the most important to develop for the musical drummer become essential for the kind of success that we as players are looking for. ´´ --- Ralph Humphrey (Drummer & Teacher: Frank Zappa, Los Angeles College of Music) ´´ Ich liebe und schätze Stephan als Mensch und als Musiker. und genau um diese Einheit geht es auch im leitfaden. Eine sehr wertvolle Sammlung an ideen und Denkanstößen. ´´ --- Patrick Fa (Drummer, Musical Director: Stefanie Heinzmann, Rea Garvey) ´´ Stephan not only emphasizes the important topic of musicality on the drumset no matter what genre of music you prefer, but more importantly he talks about how to deal with the inner game as well. this book builds a bridge between mindset and playing your instrument. ´´ --- Mark Schulman (Drummer, Hedge Fund Manager: P!nk, Cher) ´´ Die stetig wachsende Fülle von Lehrmaterial für Musiker im Internet oder auch in Buchform ist überwältigend. Zu oft werden Themen behandelt die zwar nicht hilfreich, aber eben einfach zu vermitteln sind. Stephan Emig wählt mit diesem Buch einen anderen Weg, indem er sich nicht nur einem Thema widmet, das an Wichtigkeit gar nicht hoch genug einzustufen ist, sondern beleuchtet es auch auf eine verständliche und interessante Weise. Danke Stephan! ´´ --- Benny Greb (Drummer, Clinician: Moving Parts, Benny Greb Brass Band)
Sagt man Nürnberg, meint man meistens den historischen Kern und lässt die ausufernde Großstadt drum herum außen vor. Auch wenn sich die mittelalterlich geprägte Altstadt noch immer mit einem vollständig erhaltenen Mauerring umgibt und sie allein dem touristischen Interesse gilt, ist sie keineswegs eine zeitlose Idylle. Sie versteht sich als lebendiger, wenn auch relativ kleiner und durchaus gemütlich-urbaner Mittelpunkt der zweitgrößten Stadt Bayerns, in der das fränkische Lebensgefühl nicht zu kurz kommt und an der der Zeitgeist nicht kommentarlos vorbeigezogen ist. Der Inhalt kurz und knapp: Die Top 10 des Reiseziels; eine Chronik zur Stadtgeschichte; die Stadt aktiv erkunden: Routenvorschläge zu ausgewählten Highlights; außergewöhnliche Perspektive finden Sie unter dem Stichpunkt Streifzüge; Ausflüge in Nürnbergs Umgebung führen nach Fürth, Erlangen und Schwabach; Erleben & Genießen: Unterkünfte, Restaurants, Theater/Musicals, Shopping, mit Kindern in der Stadt, Erholung & Sport. Zudem enthält der Reiseführer einen Serviceteil mit reisepraktischen Tipps von A bis Z sowie einen ausfaltbaren Stadtplan, ÖPNV-Plan und Register.
When Patti Niemi was 10 years old, all the children in her school music class lined up to choose their instruments. Boy after boy chose drums, and girl after girl chose flute-that is, until it was Patti´s turn. From that point onward, Niemi devoted her life to mastering the percussive arts. Cymbals, snare drum, marimba, timpani, chimes: she practiced them all, and in 1983, she entered Juilliard, the most prestigious music conservatory in in the world. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly-changing New York City in the 1980s, Sticking It Out recounts Niemi´s years mastering her craft and struggling to make it in a cutthroat race to a coveted job in an orchestra. Along the way, she has to compete with friends, face her own crippling anxiety, and confront the delicate, and sometimes perilous, balance of power between teachers and their students. Niemi´s vivid memoir brings us inside a world that most of us never get to see: grueling practice schedules, intimate musical relationships, and long moments at the back of an orchestra spent sweating and counting before a big cymbal crash. Sticking It Out is a humbling account of the work that leads to a dazzling moment of perfection, and of the dogged persistence it takes to follow a dream.
